X-Wing. Probably the best board game in the world

Ra's al Ghul. Oddly, pronounced differently than in the movie. Some kind of Trials, flying through a hallucinogenic world. Impressive use of Physx if the framerate did drop a lot. Enjoy the battles with 20 odd enemies on the screen, especially when they all jump on you and there's that Matrix...

The Penguin! Truth be told this isn't making all that much sense. The Joker poisons me so I have no option but to find a cure for him. Mr Freeze is being held by the Penguin, yet Joker's guys are there trying to kill me to.... what exactly? Stop me getting the cure? Doesn't make any sense at all....

Tue 1st Jan, 2013 by Matt
Not sure how much progress I'm making in this game. I keep getting sidetracked, which is kinda of fun. And sometimes you just have to glidekick someone when you're really trying to get somewhere else. So the Joker is poisoned and has poisoned me. It's one of those sequences that doesn't quite make...

  A while back, on a game site forum, I got in a "discussion" with a user about Left 4 Dead. As is worryingly typical for the internet, it was more an argument that an discussion where some idiot (not me!) mistakes Fact for Opinion and shows such a lack of intellect you have to worry about the...

This 25 character title limit is playing havoc with my alliteration Did everyone get what games they wanted this Xmas? Like most adults I'd bought my own presents and the missus happily wrapped them. I'd picked up some titles at a recent Blockbuster sale and grabbed an additional title in the week...

I don't like switching characters in games. I don't like the way it takes me from one character who [hopefully] I've grown somewhat attached to, and made to play as someone else. I've never liked it in any game, ever. So make me Batman, then take that away.... how dare you! Switching to Catwoman...

Having sat on it for a while, I've finally downloaded and installed Batman Arkham City via Steam. Hours 0 -1 Fuck me I'm BATMAN! Fuck yeah. I jump and glide and punch the shit out of bad guys. Looks super slick; 1920x1080, anti aliasing, DX11 features on Medium, getting a fantastic framerate. Could...

Merry fucking Xmas you fuckers! Well I stumbled upon this image. Made me laugh! I've got the old calendar kicking around somewhere, have to get that scanned in. Maybe next year, lol. Looking forward to some Xmas gaming and especially some Unreal Xmas Fun. Been too long since we done that.

Playstation Plus

Thu 20th Dec, 2012 by Matt
I know more than a few people who are negative about Playstation Plus. Some people call it a rental system (it kind of is), and make snide remarks about never owning the games you're "paying for" with your subscription. These same people always own an XBox 360 and the irony that they're paying a...

Procedural Mayhem

Wed 19th Dec, 2012 by Matt
Planetside 2 is now off my play list. I've gone as far as uninstalling it. It may be a technical marvel but the gamplay is ultimately unsatisfying. No end game, no sense of satisfaction. Take a base, lose a base. It never ends. There's a reason my favourite mode in Battlefield is Rush I tend to...

That's more like it After the dull port forwarding issues of last night, John and I decided to give UT2004 another go this evening. We re-visited some classic maps, and kicked all kinds of low skill bot butts. We're bad arse like that It's wonderful how the names of maps comes back to you. Slow...

Planetside2 diary night 7

Thu 13th Dec, 2012 by Matt
One week. I've averaged over an hour a night. My Planetside 2 relationship is now somewhat frayed. Turns out I miss the lack of direction more than I expected. With no End Game, it kind of seems pointless. You take control of a base after a monstrous firefight, and while pushing for the next, you...

That's not my picture, but it gives you a sense of the game. All those air vehicles, piloted by real people, loaded up transporters and with gunners in them. Three nights in and I'm still fighting in a "snowy area". I only know there are different areas due to screenshots like above All I see is...

There's been quite a bit of talk about Planetside 2. It's a massive, free to play online shooter. I've been enjoying the F2P PC recently, be it Jetpack Joyride on the Android platform on the mobile form, or Tribes Ascend on the PC. No money down, you grab the game and play. I ended up putting £30...

This is the latest instalment of the Prince of Persia series. There are enhancements in all areas of the game, however the game play remains the same as it predecessors. The events of this game take place a few days after the second game, The Warrior Within, ends. The story begins with the Prince...

Nintendo DS vs Sony PSP
John's picture
Sun 18th Sep, 2005 by John
Well I have had a Nintendo DS since December 2004 and the PSP for less than a week so my opinion is likely to change over the coming weeks / months depending on the games I buy for each console.  The reason I bought a DS and not a PSP originally is that I have got a PS2 which I very rarely play...
